There are some things you should never say to your single friends. Are you friends with someone whoโ€™s single? If the answer is yes, you might want to continue reading this. Mistakes can be made when talking to your single friend, so think of this as a rule of thumb. Here are 5 things you should never say to your single friends.

1. You'll Find Mr. Right

(Your reaction) Thank you!

One of the worst things you should never say to your single friends is, "donโ€™t worry youโ€™ll find Mr. Right, your time will come soon." Itโ€™s ok to reassure your friend that she is a great catch, but youโ€™re making it seem like finding someone will take forever. Iโ€™m sure sheโ€™s already feeling like it wonโ€™t happen, so just by you saying this, you'll make things worse.

2. When Are You Going to Settle down?

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Maybe sheโ€™s not ready to settle down. Did you ever think that sheโ€™s going on multiple dates to see if someone special catches her eye? Not everyone is in a rush to date or get hitched. She probably wants to keep her options open.

3. Arenโ€™t You Tired of Being by Yourself?

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Word of advice, donโ€™t ever ask your friend this question. What if she is looking and just hasnโ€™t had any luck. Maybe she is tired of being single, but just havenโ€™t met that special someone. I mean, do you think she wants to be alone on Valentineโ€™s Day?

4. How Does It Feel Being the Only Single Friend Left?

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Seriously? This is probably the worst thing you could say, especially if she just got out of a relationship. Please donโ€™t even think to ask this. It could open up some painful feelings she might have.

5. Youโ€™re Probably Not Doing Anything This Weekend, do You Mind House Sitting for Me?

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Donโ€™t automatically assume that your friend isnโ€™t having fun, just because she isnโ€™t dating or married yet. Donโ€™t get me wrong if youโ€™re genuinely asking her to house sit thatโ€™s ok, but donโ€™t tell her itโ€™s because she is single. Most importantly, just because sheโ€™s alone, doesnโ€™t mean sheโ€™s at home with a container of ice cream on the couch every weekend.

Iโ€™m pretty sure youโ€™ve said at least one or all of these things to her. Please understand that thereโ€™s always a better way to approach this topic. Be mindful of how or what you say to her, it might be a sensitive or touchy subject. Is there anything youโ€™ve said that wasnโ€™t on the list?
